Katina Lowe, a single mother of nine, had a series of 24 seizures this past June. She couldn’t walk until August, and she’s been limited to mild activity since. Her situation only worsened in recent months when her refrigerator, washer and dryer all became inoperable. She doesn’t have a stove.
Lowe was nominated for The Reindeer Gang by Loaves and Fishes Ministries. Shirley Washington, president of the group’s board, said $2,000 has been collected for the family, but another $700 would make the Lowe’s Christmas very special.
The Lowe family will receive a new refrigerator, freezer and an electric stove.
Someone has committed to donating a washer and dryer, and the family already has received used clothes, Washington said.
While appliances are the first priority, Washington said she would also like to purchase an educational toy for each child.
